Behind the Scenes

Description

The dwarven tunnel sweeper is dressed in white trousers, a long-sleeved white shirt, and dark brown, thick-soled boots. A silver pick-and-shovel insignia adorns the right breast of his shirt. His short-cropped brown beard and long brown hair match the color of his eyes perfectly. A large, partially filled sack dangles from his leather belt, and he carries a corn broom and a short-handled dustpan. The corn broom's handle is long and sturdy, and it could even double for a quarterstaff if need be.

Questions

>ask sweeper about tunnel

The tunnel sweeper nods to you and says, "I keep the tunnels clean best I can. If you find any bad patches of dirt, just let me know, alright?"

>ask sweeper about salt

The tunnel sweeper exclaims, "Sheesh! Salt pours out from under the door of the salt works constantly. It's a wonder the snail doesn't shrivel up when it passes through there."

>ask sweeper about snail

The tunnel sweeper grimaces and says, "A lot of people really like that snail. Personally, I can't stand it. The slime trails it leaves make the dirt and dust stick to the floors. I gotta scrape 'em up instead of just sweeping 'em up!"

>ask sweeper about mining

The tunnel sweeper shakes his head and says, "I wouldn't know. Not all of us dwarves are miners, you know."

>ask sweeper about chocolatier

The tunnel sweeper smiles dreamily and says, "Oooh, the chocolatier has the most mouthwatering chocolates to be found anywhere! Fruit-filled ones. Nut-filled ones. Just plain chocolate. Truffles!" He sighs happily and says, "Got to love that chocolate."
